Sutton Bonington is very unusual in that it has two medieval churches, dating back to the time when it was actually two villages, Sutton and Bonington.
St Michaels (LE12 5PF) is the largest and is situated on Main Street.
St Annes (LE12 5NJ) is at the end of St. Anne’s Lane, a turning off Main Street.
Both churches are well maintained and used regularly. They are open each day and everyone is most welcome to call in at any time to look around, to pray or simply to sit quietly.
The Parishes are currently interregnum, and any enquires should be made to the church wardens.
Morning services are held most Sundays at 11.00am either in St Michael’s or St Anne’s.
United services are held regularly alternating with the Methodist Church.
On the 5th Sunday services alternate between St Michael’s or St Anne’s and St James’, Normanton on Soar.
A service of Prayer Book Holy Communion is held on Wednesdays at 9.30am at St Anne’s.
For up to date service details, please see church noticeboards, Parish Lines magazine or the Village News.
As the Parishes are currently interregnum, requests for Baptisms, Marriages, Funerals, home communion and visits at home or in hospital should be made to the Church Wardens.
